Perhaps it was the beautiful morning, or seeing my friend’s lovely face, but I honestly couldn’t fault our brunch at The Modern Pantry.
We drank lattes (£2.80), hot chocolate (£3) and Prosecco (£6 a glass). We ate oozing poached eggs, buttery spinach, roasted garlic infused tomatoes, grilled, salty halloumi and granary toast (£8.80). It was a fresh, modern take on a fry up that would have been followed by Raspberry & Ricotta Pancakes, but our stomachs couldn’t cope with that level of greediness.
I’m looking for an excuse to go back for lunch or dinner – I’m sure it won’t take much. Until then, I’ll give The Modern Pantry top LLE marks for brunch and wish the delightful waiters a very happy weekend.
